You need a Building Permit to construct a deck. You may also need a Planning Permit.

Use the Construct a Deck guide to find out which permits you need for your project.

  • Begin at Step 1 and answer the questions one at a time.  
  • You may be asked to provide information about the height of the deck, the zone and size of the property.
  • When prompted, exit the guide and apply for the permits relevant to your project.
